Making Law. Making a difference.

As a Solicitor working in Government, you will undertake high quality legal work and have the opportunity to move around and work in different areas of law and practice, working within different departments throughout your career.

A number of government departments recruit legal trainees each year via the Government Legal Profession’s Legal Trainee Scheme (LTS). The departments which typically offer legal trainee places through the LTS are the Government Legal Department (GLD), Government Legal Department – Commercial Law Group, HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC), the National Crime Agency (NCA) and the Competition and Markets Authority (CMA). Legal teams are primarily based in London but there are also opportunities in our regional offices in Bristol, Leeds, and Manchester.
